Hey 3NL, thanks for contributing.

Do you think that ALL Christians believe Adam and Eve were real? IF that is the case, I am not aware of it. I thought, actually, that the majority of Christians realize the tales in the OT are metaphors, and not literal history.

I find the concept of original sin to be heinous and awful. That concept alone has damaged countless people, and if there is one thing I would eradicate from ALL HUMANITY, it is the idea that ANY of us is "born a sinner."

Perhaps, it has something to do with the oath that Jesuits have supposedly taken.



My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope.

You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace; to take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means. You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from

I can't speak for all Christians, but the church I grew up in taught it literally. I'm willing to bet that a large portion of Christians do take it literally, but not all.

We're definitely not born sinners, when's the last time you saw a baby do something bad or commit a crime? I've never seen it myself. The only thing that I would consider that makes us sinners is the world around us and the systems that are in place. The way I see it, the whole original sin thing is just the church passing its guilty conscience and sins onto its followers.

Thanks for clarifying. Yes, I've heard many stories about being indoctrinated with Adam and Eve being a true and literal story. Apparently, even within denominations and congregations, some believe it, and some do not.

I don't know much about this SSPX Catholic rebel group. Suppose I should look them up to see if I can determine whether they pimp Adam&Eve as real history.

SSPX falsely accused: "Resistance to what?"

4-24-2013

We present here in 3 parts a public conference given by Fr. Daniel Themann on April 16 at St. Mary's, Kansas, which answers some questions from the so-called "Resistance" concerning the SSPX's recent discussions with Rome.

Fr. Themann carefully outlines necessary principles for properly understanding the situation while contrasting examples of Archbishop Lefebvre during his own talks with the Holy See, particularly of what led up to the "May Protocol".


I just listened to all of part one. It was all introductory material about how to make "prudent" judgments about what is right in a give situation. Fine. Got it.

He said NOTHING about the apparent topic, which was that the SSPX has been falsly accused of resisting Rome.

Parts 2 and 3 are not yet available. But evidently, the SSPX is denying this allegation - so it remains to be seen whether the OP is accurate or not. Interesting.

Although during his introductory "teacher" speech, he did say "original sin" was his premise.

I disagree with it.

If I understand SSPX correctly, I think they basically don't like anything post Vatican II. Offers have been made for them to come into full communion with Rome, but I think they're not quite ready to "come home."

As far as original sin, there is some biblical evidence for this.

Even though the Church teaches original sin, I don't think you'd find a Catholic clergyman that would ever teach a dead baby goes to Hell.

There's a good statement from the Catechism of the Catholic Church regarding original sin:




402 All men are implicated in Adam's sin, as St. Paul affirms: "By one man's disobedience many (that is, all men) were made sinners": "sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned."289 The Apostle contrasts the universality of sin and death with the universality of salvation in Christ. "Then as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man's act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for all men."290

403 Following St. Paul, the Church has always taught that the overwhelming misery which oppresses men and their inclination towards evil and death cannot be understood apart from their connection with Adam's sin and the fact that he has transmitted to us a sin with which we are all born afflicted, a sin which is the "death of the soul".291 Because of this certainty of faith, the Church baptizes for the remission of sins even tiny infants who have not committed personal sin.292

404 How did the sin of Adam become the sin of all his descendants? The whole human race is in Adam "as one body of one man".293 By this "unity of the human race" all men are implicated in Adam's sin, as all are implicated in Christ's justice. Still, the transmission of original sin is a mystery that we cannot fully understand. But we do know by Revelation that Adam had received original holiness and justice not for himself alone, but for all human nature. By yielding to the tempter, Adam and Eve committed a personal sin, but this sin affected the human nature that they would then transmit in a fallen state.294 It is a sin which will be transmitted by propagation to all mankind, that is, by the transmission of a human nature deprived of original holiness and justice. And that is why original sin is called "sin" only in an analogical sense: it is a sin "contracted" and not "committed" - a state and not an act.

405 Although it is proper to each individual,295 original sin does not have the character of a personal fault in any of Adam's descendants. It is a deprivation of original holiness and justice, but human nature has not been totally corrupted: it is wounded in the natural powers proper to it, subject to ignorance, suffering and the dominion of death, and inclined to sin - an inclination to evil that is called concupiscence". Baptism, by imparting the life of Christ's grace, erases original sin and turns a man back towards God, but the consequences for nature, weakened and inclined to evil, persist in man and summon him to spiritual battle.

406 The Church's teaching on the transmission of original sin was articulated more precisely in the fifth century, especially under the impulse of St. Augustine's reflections against Pelagianism, and in the sixteenth century, in opposition to the Protestant Reformation. Pelagius held that man could, by the natural power of free will and without the necessary help of God's grace, lead a morally good life; he thus reduced the influence of Adam's fault to bad example. The first Protestant reformers, on the contrary, taught that original sin has radically perverted man and destroyed his freedom; they identified the sin inherited by each man with the tendency to evil (concupiscentia), which would be insurmountable. The Church pronounced on the meaning of the data of Revelation on original sin especially at the second Council of Orange (529)296 and at the Council of Trent (1546).297

Not to rain of your parade. But the concept of original sin is Christian. Yes, Christian believe in original sin. But I would like to argue against this for fun. To cause people to look at the bible differently. These two links are from anti-missionary websites, but they offer a constructive view on the concept of original sin.


Jews do not believe in the doctrine of original sin. This is a Christian belief based on Paul's statement, "Therefore just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned" (Romans 5:12). The doctrine was fully developed by the church father, Augustine of Hippo (354-430).



According to this doctrine, hereditary sinfulness is inescapably transmitted to human beings by their parents, starting with Adam and Eve. It is alleged that only acceptance of Jesus as savior from sin can redeem a person from sin. All those who do not accept Jesus as their savior from sin are condemned to eternal suffering in hell.



Whether man is a sinner by nature or not is immaterial. Judaism teaches the biblical way to repentance and reconciliation with God. Sincere repentance in which the sinner pledges to rectify his sinful ways and lead a righteous life is one means that is open at all times to all of humanity (Jonah 3:5-10, Daniel 4:27). God counsels Cain, "Why are you annoyed, and why has your countenance fallen? If you do good [that is, change your ways], will it not be lifted up [that is, you will be forgiven]. But if you do not do good, sin rests at the door; and it desires you, but you may rule over it" (Genesis 4:6-7). God informs Cain that repentance and subsequent forgiveness are always open to him. The remedy for sin is clear. Biblically, God's loving-kindness depends on right conduct and extends to all humanity.


As you see from the sourced text and articles that are linked. The concept of original sin is Christian. However, Jews disagree and there seems to be a good case.

Great perspective! The author seemed to have a Calvinistic view of original sinners, ie we're all wretched creatures and cannot do good without Christ. Anyone can do good without Christ, even non-theists. Mankind, though wounded by original sin, is not incapable of doing good!


The author is Jewish, so therefore does not believe Christ to be the Messiah. So, if there is no original sin, then we don't need a Savior either. So it makes sense that he doesn't believe it.

Yes, I know a lot about both Judaism and Christianity; as well how different their views on characters, verses, etc. I just like to debate it and expand my knowledge on religion. See why there are similarities and differences.

I've only just yesterday even heard of them. But, they (the SSPX) are denying that they are 'resisting' the Vatican's stance.

I'm still waiting on learning more.

I think the concept of "original sin" is, and was from the very beginning, about instilling shame, obedience, guilt, and submission.

I also think it's entirely inappropriate.

I thought this was an interesting biographical sketch about our new Pope. I hope that sharing this will help those who have concerns about Francis understand him better and form their opinions of him based on fact more so than MSM. Read it a decide for yourself if you are pro or con Pope Francis.

Who is Jorge Bergoglio?

The underlined is the truth, thanks. Interesting, it was Calvin who came up with "man is completely depraved."
I thought it was Martin Luther.

Pray for Pope Francis, he has much to do and in a short period of time. Pope Francis is the Pope of the
3rd Secret of Fatima.

Jesus:

When all begins to become clear to the cardinals, they will see the greatness of their call and the overwhelming responsibility that has fallen to them. They will see the state of the world, so ready to rip apart at the seams. They will see a Church, bringing in a full harvest in some continents and having little to show in others. They will see the Muslim threat, ever growing and always menacing.

Yet, they will see more. They will see my Sacred Heart, filled with love yet so many times rejected, even by my Church. Into my heart they must enter. Only there will they see and understand. No one should sit upon the Chair of Peter unless he is close to my heart. I have not called an intellectual. I have not called a charming personality. I want one kind of pope – a pope whose heart burns with mine, whose wisdom comes from the Holy Spirit, and whose papacy will follow my direction. ...
